Introduction to the Nutrition Diagnostic Certification
“A healthy body yields a healthy mind.” This has been my belief system since my teens and I gave a presentation in a Philosophy class freshman year of College on this very subject. I believed that as long as I ate correctly and had a healthy diet and exercised often, I would be free of disease. I was doing exactly that, until many years later, when I had a ski accident.
I suffered a TBI-Traumatic Brain Injury. I was down for the count. I had continuous chronic fatigue, weight gain of 30 lbs. in five weeks and my brain was not working at all. I had to figure out what was going on.
The doctors kept pumping me with different medications to no avail. I had to do something; I could no longer exist in the state I was in. I started to explore and do research on my symptoms. I learned that several different toxicities were the possible root cause of my health dysfunctions. I brought my findings to the medical doctors; it was concluded that my findings were correct.
I wanted to heal in a natural, healthy and nutritious way and be free from synthetic drugs. I employed a Clinical Nutritionist to help me address the symptoms, get to the root cause of the dis-ease state I was experiencing and resolve any long-term conditions resulting from the ski accident. This experience gave me the insight and ability to seek a new career and to enhance my knowledge as a Professional Fitness Trainer.
I have developed this course to help the educators, educate. This course is designed for those who choose to live a long life well, free of disease, free of medications and illness, and to promote well being and awareness to others.
This nutritional education program offers the third component to health and wellness…addressing the Physiology of the Biochemistry, getting to the root cause of health dysfunctions and disease. The Health, Wellness, Fitness and Nutrition professional will learn how to evaluate and assess, and offer a healthy balance of foods and nutrients to support the different Metabolic Systems including the Endocrine, Immune, and Neurological Systems for an illness free life.
